Lunar New Year - Year of the RatClick to enlarge

Unfortunately we’ve had to cancel the Lunar New year Celebration in Southport.

While we had hoped to proceed, we have had a large number of vendors pull out of the event meaning we are unable to go ahead. Chinatown, is however, still open for business so please get out and support our Chinese community.


The Gold Coast's premier Lunar New Year celebration.

Join us on Saturday 1 February from 4pm to 9pm at Gold Coast Chinatown for this free event.

Bring in the Year of the Rat in Gold Coast Chinatown with:

  • delicious Asian street food
  • live music
  • cultural entertainment
  • pop up laneway bar
  • children's activities
  • outdoor movie screening of Ratatouille at 7pm.

Getting to the event is easy. Ride your bike and or catch the G: Link direct to Southport station. Alternatively, parking is available at:

Bottled water will not be sold to help reduce the amount of waste produced at the event – instead, free water refills will be available so don't forget to bring your own water bottle.

Everyone is invited, so come along with your family and friends to help celebrate the Gold Coast's largest Lunar New Year Celebration.
